Sometimes you’re already committed to the wrong person when fate finally brings you the right one.
When NYU professor Daniel Gardner’s career-obsessed wife convinces him to move to the suburbs, he hopes it’s a first step toward starting the family he longs to have. Instead of domestic bliss he finds his neighbor, Marienne Valeti. She loves her freelance design job, but must contend with a growing sense of isolation created by her husband’s indifference. A penchant for good books, bad movies, and Marienne’s to-die-for brownies sparks a powerful bond between them. Passion simmers, but they resist its lure, surrendering only in the seclusion of their minds. Their friendship helps them weather every hardship, from divorce to widowhood, leaving them both secretly wondering if it can survive a first kiss.
My couple of cents:
I will admit that I'm not much for Women's Fiction. To be honest, I don't think I've ever tried reading one but I've heard nothing but wonderful things about Karen's first Women's Fiction novel. As a writer, I love it when another writer steps out of their normal genre and tries something new. I will be adding this book to my TBR list for sure, along with some of her other titles.
Here's a link to a review from Karen's recent blog tour.
